Selling off a ..............

Hi there, I need to clean my Studio out.  It has been a catch all since the Tornado 5 years ago.  I'm still buying, still making cards and still enjoying the craft but it looks like a war zone in that room and now my dining area.  I need to pair down and get rid of stuff that I never use if I'm going to move into Georgia and RV full-time.
Just before I left for Florida last year I had new carpet put in and new upholstery.  Bad move on my part because I got Tucker Dec. 23rd and he was only 8 weeks old.  He is the most stubborn dog I have ever met, he didn't think the Potty Pad was for pee pee, Pooping was always done in the same spot. Needless to say before I leave this summer the carpet will be shampoo'd and between Jake & Tucker  and me,  I will be the dominate one, the boss, the leader!
Gosh I leave in less than 45 days to go to Wisconsin, Indiana, and the Pigeon Forge.  I'm excited it will be the most driving I've done in forever. Over a thousand miles to Diane's, then down to the F.R.O.G. Rally in Goshen, In. after that I will drive down through Kentucky and attend a 3 day Birthday Card Club Retreat. I am so excited woo hoo!!!!
Ok anyway trying to keep this sale thing straight and on two Internet boards and the postage, oh that is such a joke then packing it and shipping.  I'm bushed and I haven't made a card in days so........ hang in there with me I'll have a card posted this week I promise.

OH OH OH the big news is my Second Great Grandson was born Thursday 5 weeks early.  After much praying and thoughts Kaiden is still in NICU but he's looking real good and has big feet just like Big Brother Karson.  God Bless you all.

Well it happened turned the big 70 last week but the good news is I got 38 birthday cards from friends and family .Could not have asked for a better birthday only thing that didn't happen is that Tucker didn't get Tucked, clipped or neutered guess this 3 pound boy is waiting to be a real man.  Anyway all is well around here, my friend Cathy got a pace maker put in and she's feeling really well for the first time in a really long time.

I've done some card making but I'm preparing for a trip to St. Germain, Wi. and Goshen, In. in June so getting the RV ready is my first priority.  Here's a couple of the cards I've made.

You all know my love for butterflies and I love the color combo black & white so these were simple easily cards I made for Head Gamez, where Joey & Linda sell my cards.  They requested Get Well & Sympathy cards with butterflies so these are just a few.   Everyone take care and know I think of all my followers often that's why I'm trying hard to post more.
God Bless, Jeanine

Contest Entry for Sizzix

Lord have mercy on me I've once again let my followers down by not following thru with some posts.  I have just been in another world for so long.  I haven't crafted but sporadically for the past year.  Oh but I still buy stamping stuff and then I'll sit down and make cards or play with my new toys for a few days then blam I fall off again.  What is wrong with me?  Why can't I stay on a straight path and quit being so wishy washy?  Could it be that my mind, body and heck I don't know what else will be 70 that's seventy years old in less than 7 days.  The Lord has blessed me so very much and I thank my almighty maker everyday I'm on this earth for the good & bad.  I can only say I'll try to be a better person to my followers by blogging at least once a week and Lord willing and the creek don't dry I'll put it on my calendar and phone to alert me to this promise for all of you.

Now this is a few of my latest creations.  Thanks for Head Gamez, Joey French and Linda Silvers for selling my cards at their shop I always get requests for special cards.  This past Christmas Joey contacted me in Florida with a request for 40 more Christmas cards for special patrons.  Now they asked me to make lots of butterfly cards and sympathy cards.  Well anyone that knows me knows I love butterflies (I actually have one on the side of my RV and loads more inside).  Every chance I get I stop by butterfly farms, museums and such I LOVE BUTTERFLIES.  I even believe that my Daddy visits me regularly in the hue of a pale yellow butterfly.
 This is SU card stock, embossing folder and Sizzix & Su butterfly dies all on confetti white cardstock.  Very plain but very dramatic.
 This again is SU cardstock, a Sizzix embossing folder and a Sizzix tree die cut.  
Lastly is SU cardstock with Very vanilla and black. the stamp is Angel Company and SU embossing powder in gold.  Now I will be the first to say some of my stuff is unmarked so I don't know if it's Tonic, Sizzix, SU or who and when that happens I will explain it my age has made my mind spongy something I am not proud of but an old dog can learn new tricks.  Now I'm off to play with my Mini Misti that I just got in the mail.  Till another day, God Bless you all.

With a little help from a friend!

I'm back..............................................Oh and did I mention that I signed up with Lori Stigler in Nashville to be my upline for Stampin UP!  Yes I needed a new lease on stamping and I have always loved Stampin UP!  So if anyone needs anything, anything at all from Stampin UP!  talk to me and help me stay in business for a while.  I have a new bunch of stamps (I sold all my other ones almost) and now I'm in the groove.  I'm stamping and playing everyday and I'm happy, so here's a little sample of some of the things I've done.
This is an Tim Holtz embossing folder then I used a Darice embossing folder to do the Cross.  After I adhered everything together I added a tiny border to the bottom from Dazzles.  Then I must have took 15 pictures and couldn't get the glare out of it so.  Here you be.

 This one is a Darice embossing folder and I water colored the images embossed on the sheet, put a bow from Stampin UP! bow punch, some shiny grass and I'm done.  I like the softness of the whole card yet the pop of grass.

 These are some of my favorite cards from the Gina K Designs and I used my Copic's to color the images then I added a pinwheel brad, some Washi Tape as the background and I was done.

 The verses that go with these cards are all individual stamps so you can put what you want on the inside of the card and 'Yes I can relate to all the verses.
 This is a little owl card that I made for a swap that I'm in every month (2nd month I've partaken) so I guess I really am getting back into this.  I just missed being able to make something nice.

 Now here is my favorite card so far.  I love the paper (just scraps I don't even know who makes them) I had the die cut and the Martha Stewart doily I got the orange ribbon flower online and just put the little cross in it.  I added a MS butterfly that I added some color to and its done except for the inside of the card.

I've been doing alot of paper inside the card also it helps to finish off the card and make it look more professional.  I follow Darsie Bruno's blog she's come a long way from when we were all on DeeDee's team of card makers.  Now she designs for Spellbinders and about 10 other companies.  She's just amazing and I doubt I will ever be as good as her but its something to work for.

Now before I sign off I want you to know I've been real close to shutting down the blog because I don't here any comments probably because I'm so infrequent but I'm am trying so if I know someone is watching I'll continue otherwise I'm going to quit posting and spend more time creating.  Thanks for taking the time to look and thanks for believing in me when I lost hope in believing anything.  God Bless and know God is always with you.  That's something I forgot for a while.  Have a great day catch you in a few.  LOL

Everyone needs encouragement.  It's the opposite of bullying or hurting.
someone's feelings yet it gives them a sense of hope.  Isn't that a good feeling to have inside yourself?  I'm the kind of person that needs encouragement I need to know I'm doing the right thing and I would hope that I convey that to others each day of my life.  Put yourself the word I in this verse 1 Corinthians 13:4-6, I put myself in there and realize I have a lot more to learn about myself.


That's why I like to make these encouragement cards for others when their feeling down, undecided, lonely, or just lost in the moment.  Make it a point to

always compliment someone no matter how little it will mean the world to them that you thought something special of them.  I know these might be silly ideas but they sure mean a lot to me when someone compliments me on my hair, my eyes, my shirt or my cards.  Always remember to 'Pay it Forward', God Bless.

 Don't you just see the neighbor sitting in the sun in Florida with his puppy by his side sippin a ice tea and soakin up the rays?  I love this stamp set is Art Impressions and I am always getting request for handmade post cards or greeting cards for RVing or camping so this stamp set is perfect.
This next one is just cardstock layered with fishing stickers attached because I have a huge fan base of fishermen and the wives love to give their men cards.

While I'm on the road I make cards, sell cards for $1 each and I give haircuts to men & women for a donation.  That way I have a little stash to buy me something great someday.  I'm also know to give my cards away as Thank you packs just because someone did something special for me or touch me with their smile.  I'm a big supporter of the 'Pay it Forward' concept and I hope each and everyone of you will try it, the happiness it brings me is priceless.

Have a great day and remember to SMILE at someone, they'll like it and it will start to fill your heart with so much.    God Bless
